Guest Blogger: What a dish! Random DIY pieces become talk of the Tea

Here’s a super easy, really fun project for DIYers of all ages.   The result is a one-of-a-kind serving tray, created in just an hour and a half, that is sure to get many “Oohs!” and “Aahs!” What do you need?  For each serving tray, select three dishes of varying sizes going from bigger to smaller […]

Fashion Blogger Profile: WHAT I WORE: tip to toe!

My love of secondhand clothing began back in high school. I worked at a resell store as a clothing buyer. I was 16 years old and it was my job to sift through bags of people’s last season’s fashions to price and sell in the store. I loved that secondhand clothing allowed everyone to recreate […]

Fashion Blogger Profile: Heart, Print, and Style

Secondhand shopping has always been a part of my life. From growing up in DC, begrudgingly walking to the Georgia Avenue Thrift Store for back-to-school shopping to (thanks to my frugal Dad) to presently when I visit a thrift store just because it’s a Monday. While I don’t enjoy heading out to a mall/center or standalone […]

Fashion Blogger Profile: Got It At Goodwill

Secondhand shopping is in my blood and I’ve been doing it for as long as I can remember. My grandma loved to find name brands for a fraction of their department store price and would announce the bargain price of her outfit to anyone who asked… and to some who didn’t. She passed her skills […]

There’s truly nothing better than gathering together family and friends to share a fresh meal composed of local summer bounty.

Guest Blogger: Turn a Drab Gray to a Vibrant Look

Happy Thursday, Fashionistas! I’m Betsy from Goldwill Digger and a self-proclaimed Goodwill fashionista. This season I have seen gray turn from drab and dull to vibrant and chic. Models and fashionistas can be seen walking the runways and streets of New York and Paris rocking monochromatic gray looks. Standing alone, gray is flat and boring, but […]
